Nov-24-07  roughstuff: I guess the world junior champion loves a scrap !
Nov-24-07  fgh: Surely this game points to Adly's future potential as a chess player.
Nov-24-07  suenteus po 147: <fgh> It certainly doesn't hurt :)
Nov-24-07  aragorn69: Great fight! For a first round, Kamsky has got a tough nut to crack.
Nov-24-07  jon01: Yeah, probably the most interesting match of the first round. I suspected that Adly was quite good opponent if not the best from these 64 lower-rated players.

Great game. Adly put up a helluva fight against a 2700. 11 ... ♘f6-g4!? showed that he had no fear of his higher-rated opponent.
